Obituary is one of the most influencial band in Death Metal history (and even hardcore). When Obituary announced their plans to record a new album in early 2007 the metal world stood up and applauded. One of death metal’s crown jewels was returning and fans could not have been more enthused. The album, Xecutioner’s Return, delivered the goods as only Obituary could. Now two years later the band are back with their new epic. Signature in every way, Darkest Day shows that this band truly gets better with age.
